Starr Junkie, Amy Bobo, (SJ for short) began her journey of mixing shortly after she encountered her first rave in 1993 in Denver, CO. With the support of her father and mother, Starr Junkie started out on Technic 1200′s and a Gemini mixer. With many supporters, friends, and family, her passion for the art grew in 1994 in her home town of Colorado springs, CO. Starr Junkie was actually the first female dj in her town, and her passion continues this day with the love of music. She was given the support by her dj mentors, Sante (In Vision Entertainment, Denver, CO), and Tony G. (Sodo’s nightclub, The Lost Art, Colorado Springs, CO) and was introduced to the skills of the trade. Both Sante and Tony G. shared with her, time on the tables during their nightly sets at the once popular night clubs METRO & Tremors, off of Academy Blvd.
Unfortunately( 😥 ), a few years later finances were exceedingly tight, and her tables, mixer, amp, and speakers were sold.
However ( 😀 ), in 2009 SJ’s passion was once again tapped into with the help of long time friend
(and now husband)
introducing her to cdj’s. Since then she has learned to spin on Pioneer, Newmark, and Gemini cdj’s. She continues to spin some of her vinyl, and hopes to own a pair of Tech’s again someday in near future since she truly misses the sound only vinyl can create.
SJ plays a wide variety of music and genres, from progressive house & electro, to breaks and dNb. She does produce some of her own intro’s and samples through Ableton. Starr Junkie has the ambition and goal to produce her own tracks within the next few years.
In Aug.2011, SJ made her featured debut on dj/producer “
WRMS Radio Mix Show which is broadcasted out of Brooklyn, NY.

STARR JUNKIE BROADCASTS:
~ Funky Buddha ~
SJ’s fellow TLA dj Michael Myers, made a visit to Colorado from Chicago in April 2013, playing at Denver’s Funky Buddha. This broadcast was done via the support of TLA’s DirtyRotten crew, and was a huge success!
Starr Junkie broadcast several events held at Subterrean Night club in Colorado Springs, CO. The first of these broadcasts being The Stone Age! This event had an amazing support with apperances from TLA’s Natural
Nate, as well as other greats such as DMX and J-Rush.
The next show was ‘Starrs Come Out’ (November 2012) which was a personal birthday event and a fundraiser. Together, many close friends such as MacKenzie Hays, DJ Kenetix, DJ Fuse, DJ Oliver Twizted (as well as many more DJ’s, and multiple production companies) banded together along with dozens of supporters at Subterrean Nite club, and helped raised money for FM (Fibromyalgia) research. Sufferers (like Starr Junkie herself) felt that giving back to the community, and raising money for FM research was exceedingly important, as well as to initiate hope that finds relief, and ultimately a cure, for this disabling disease.
SJ’s additional TLA broadcast at Subterrean Night club, was for the all female dj line-up. DJ’s MollyKule, Evenflo, and Domina all brought the bass, and set up an outstanding show which featured DJ HEAVYGRINDER that evening. This broadcast was truly an amazing turn out online, and offline as well.
~ Thai Lily ~
Shortly after the HEAVYGRINDER broadcast, SJ met up with the crew from Electric Saturday’s held at the Thai Lily resturant. She again went live with these truly talented dj’s operating on the central east side of Colorado Springs, CO.

There they brought the best of the bass for many of their TLA supporters at The Brick Yard. “We had a great time! Everyone was exceptionally friendly and supportive of our arrival. It’s just like hanging out with friends and family…. (with the exception of an 18hr drive-lol)…. We will be back @ The Brick Yard in 2014 for sure!” – adds SJ.
